My name is Karin and I’m from Sweden. I have been in Ghana five times and I basically consider it my second home now. The people is so welcoming and it’s a beautiful country.
I have known Kofi several years now and my experience from volunteering with BFG has been amazing. BFG is doing such great work for their community by building schools for those who can’t afford it, bringing food to orphanages, arranging christmas events for the orphanage children etc. It’s been a privilege working with them, I feel lucky that I have been part of the team. Last time I was there I helped by translating documents, painting a new school building, prepared for the pig farm, amongst other things.
If you ever want to experience the fantastic country Ghana and at the same time do something meaningful that will help many people, you should definitely contact BFG! They take care of you and make you feel comfortable in every way. And the most important thing is that you get to help with the most meaningful thing of all, to make sure children can go to school and get educated!
I am already planning for my next visit, maybe I’ll see you there!
I am Hannah and I am from Germany. I had the opportunity to work with Kofi in spring 2011 during my almost one-year-stay in Ghana. We were renovating a school building in Kwaman, close to Agona Swedru. It was a great experience and a wonderful time, I will never forget. My best part of working on the construction site was how you get to see every step makes a difference on a day to day base. It was impressive to see how Kofi tries to start a social organization without any state support and without the necessary infrastructure. I can just recommend it.
My name is Andrea and I am from Canada. I had the incredible opportunity to work with and volunteer for BFG in 2010. It was a life changing experience that I will never forget. Kofi has built an undeniably positive and integral organization that has brought so much to the Ghanaian country and people. He has the best interest of his country, the people and future generations. I loved my volunteer experience, Kofi made it truly amazing through his passion, great leadership abilities and always ensured I was taken care of in every aspect.
The past 4 years has been great with BFG. My best part is the main goal of the organization, i don’t know of any other charity in the country that builds classrooms in deprived areas at zero cost to the community on a yearly basis. Workers are Paid well and on time. I also like the sense of togetherness, how quick the organization corrects it’s mistakes. Age is just a figure when it comes to the knowledge, jokes and experience we share during work hours. More than proud to be part of the team.
My name is Michelle, and I am from Canada. I met Kofi in 2009 and have had the pleasure to work with him and BFG over the last 8 years. Kofi is a wonderful leader, and is so very passionate about the work that he does to help the people of his country. He is a generous host that goes above and beyond to ensure that his friends, staff and volunteers are comfortable and happy. I highly recommend getting involved with BFG, whether it be for travel, volunteering or for sending donations.
My name is Francis Acquah, i have been working for BFG as a farm manager for the past 2 years. Since day one, I noticed you don’t build An organization but you build poeple and people build an organization. I love the way we work as a team.
Projecting ones vision and working with good volunteers from in and out of Ghana is awesome. Am Lawrence Ben Rockson a proud member of BFG Ghana. Bringing happiness to kids in Christmas is my specialty. We build equality among us.
Our names are Emma and Malva and we are from Sweden. We came in contact with Kofi and BFG fall 2013 and got the opportunity to go there a year later for 17 days. We did a school project where we thought children how to brush their teeth and handed out toothbrushes and school materials to schools and orphanages around Swedru. During that time we also got to use our photography and take photos for BFG and awareness. We are really happy that we were able to go to Kofi and BFG since they were really welcoming and took good care of us. They are all amazing people and a huge help on the way! They are doing a fantastic job and to be able to be a part of it and just help for a short time was a privilege. If you ever think about going we truly recommend Ghana and BFG and we can promise that you won’t regret it!
